Aging newspaper magnate Charles Foster Kane (Orson Welles) dies in his sprawling Florida estate after uttering a single, enigmatic final word -- "Rosebud". A reporter wants to find out what it means.
Citizen Kane is a landmark film for myriad reasons, not the least of which is the variety of techniques employed -- quick cuts, imaginative dissolves, even the iris device once popular in silent films. Welles's contribution as director-producer remains awe-inspiring: he chronicles Kane's life through a combination of highly dramatic episodes and newsreel-like footage -- slices of life that form a compelling patchwork biography.
Citizen Kane is as entertaining and gripping as it is innovative. It is the epitome of filmmaking, a masterpiece for which Welles, one of the greatest practitioners of the cinematic art, will be forever remembered.
